welcome home sea shepherds!!!
it’s good to have all three ships home and 784 whales saved!
The Steve Irwin, the Sea Shepherd’s most famous vessel. I was surprised how small it was.
Sam Simon is in Williamstown, Melbourne and is open for tours every weekend! Come down and check it out! We also sell merchandise, latest t shirts, hoodies and all the favourites.
hey!! wow this is great to hear! i do most of my activism through sea shepherd. where abouts do you live? there might be a ss chapter near you and you could join it and start helping out. i started out by touring one of the ss ships and going along to events, then i began volunteering and my life changed! you can also help by organising beach clean ups or just walking along the beach and picking up rubbish, this is so important to the oceans. teach your friends and family about ocean conservation (and sea shepherd!), this goes a long way and they really will listen! go to or start protests against overfishing, shark culls and other ocean issues. sign petitions. find an area of ocean conservation that you feel really passionate about (orca captivity, southern ocean whaling, reef destruction, seal clubbing, taiji etc) and learn all you can about it, then act! everyone has something that they can do to help the planet :) thank you so much for being interesting and wanted to help, you are really generous <3
Welcome home Sam Simon crew!!!
Emillie has traveled from Australia to join Operation Infinite Patience in Taiji, Japan.
“From an early age I was fortunate to be surrounded by a community of passionate, like-minded people. We believed protecting the rights of every living being was our personal responsibility and through our direct action their voices could be heard. As an active Sea Shepherd volunteer I understood the importance of Operation Infinite Patience and the valuable role Cove Guardians played on the ground in Taiji; witnessing & documenting daily atrocities for the world to see.
When I arrived the world was watching. A pod of 250 bottlenose dolphins spent days netted in the cove while their family unit was torturously torn apart. Dolphins deemed worthy for a life of captivity were stolen away. The remainder waited; disoriented, frightened and hungry until the eventual slaughter. On an almost daily basis I continued to witness intelligent, wild and free dolphin pods systematically driven into the cove only to depart as a commodity, either as a petrified prisoner or lifeless meat for human consumption. Every day, six months of the year, this is the reality of Taiji. And it is a visibly decaying town, symbolic of its archaic practices.
Each day, through any obstacle, the unwavering campaign leadership and perseverance of Cove Guardians strengthened me. I now believe there is no amount of tarpaulin that can hide the violence, no barrier that can mask the depressing conditions of captivity, and no cetacean transfer too far to follow. Through every adversity Cove Guardians will stand strong until the slaughter and captivity ends.
Taiji is in my heart every day. I hold my breath as the killers in banger boats head out to hunt, and feel absolute relief when they return empty handed and total disappointment when they lock into formation around a new pod. My thoughts wander to the captive dolphins and small whales imprisoned in the filthy confined pens and aquariums, ripped from their family unit forever.
Responsibility lies with each of us to empower ourselves, and others, with information; to be a voice for the voiceless and never support the captive dolphin and whale industry. I also encourage you to stand as a Cove Guardian because you have what it takes within you, too. ‘So Others Live’.”
Hi there! As far as I know right now, there is no official campaign for the reefs. Sea Shepherd is very focused on Antarctica and Taiji at the moment, but I’m sure that once the ships get back into port and funds pick up, something may be organised :)
ask me anything about sea shepherd guys!!!!
